Calendars are such useful things.
They remind us of holidays, birthdays, anniversaries. They help us schedule and coordinate soccer games, football practice, dance class, gymnastics and lunch with a girl friend. They are very useful when we need to remember important meetings we have scheduled.
Which is exactly why I should have written “Interview with Brooke Walker from Studio 5″ on my calendar a few weeks ago.
It was Monday, April 15th, one o’clock in the afternoon. I had just finished lunch and was petting the dog, when I looked out my front window and saw Brooke walking to my door. It hit me! I have an interview with Studio 5 today! Holy Forgetfulness Batman! I opened the door and exclaimed,
“Brooke! Hi! Oh my gosh, I totally forgot about the interview today!”
In her graceful, professional way, Brooke asked if I would like to reschedule. “No! No, come in. I’ll just run upstairs and change out of my sweats into something presentable!” As I ran up the stairs, I asked Brooke for fashion advice. She said to wear a solid colored shirt in a bright color.
“Please let me have something that fits that description…and dear heaven above, let it be CLEAN!” I thought as I dashed upstairs.
The closet was good to me and I found something to throw on. I combed my hair (LUCKILY I had washed it and applied make-up early that morning!) Then I joined Brooke and Cory, the videographer, in the family room.
The interview was a delight because Brooke is such a delight. I wasn’t nervous – there wasn’t time to be! We talked about the concept of clicking and training our minds to think positively. I shared our new Clicker Kits and even took them on a tour of our garage where we house all the clickers, stickers and other products on BillionClicks.com. The garage? Yes, I actually took them in the garage. Classy. I know. But no less classy than forgetting an interview, and I was on a roll.
Just a week later, the episode aired on Studio 5. I was excited to watch it. And a little nervous too. Okay, a lot nervous. Who wants to see themselves on tv? But…
I loved it.
I loved everything about it. (Except my hair sticking up a little and how goofy I look when I walk on the treadmill, but that isn’t Studio 5′s fault.)
So, as an experienced forgetter, I offer you this advice. Use. A. Calendar.
